New chronograf 1.4.0.1 host issue

#1

I am setting up a new tick stack so installed influxdb / telegraf 1.5.1/ chronograf 1.4.0.1

starting the chronograf and configuring hosts shows error:

Jan 18 12:33:11 grand chronograf[29085]: time="2018-01-18T12:33:11-06:00" level=info msg="Response: Bad Request" component=server method=POST remote_addr="<>:55472" response_time="589.023µs" status=400

Checked telegraf is having system info data updated etc.

restarted the services multiple times … did not hep.

Any help appreciated.

The chronograf InfluxDB Sources page shows teh data source correctly connected but all other pages shows error!

#3

Just found that the hostname was not showng correctly on this opensuser 13.2 host.

We fixed it and connected from a second client box and was able to configure the data source for the chronograf and it works perfectly now.

not sure these are related but my issue is gone.
